    Although I am not a huge fan of South American wildlife, jaguars hold a special place in my heart. As children, my friends and I pretended to be big cats and I always chose the jaguar because of my admiration of having the beauty of a leopard, but even more so with their large rosettes. These cats love to swim and have a common genetic mutation which is often mistaken for being its own species by referring to it as the "black panther."

    Researchers in the Amazon have noted that some wild cats can perform amazing vocal mimicry. By imitating the distress calls of a baby monkey, the cats are able to lure in a helpful adult as their next meal. The cries of a baby pied tamarin, a monkey the size of a squirrel, and other small primates have been replicated by big cats such as jaguars and pumas. Photo credit: Bjørne Christian Tørrisen
